the kind of fear president obama talked about today. trying to make people think, oh, my god, they're coming for my gun. and what happens is a lot of americans buy more of the guns and more ammunition, so it spirals on. why can't you see the plane analogy that you brought up as the perfect example of what you should be doing, which is dealing with the chicken and not all the eggs? the chicken is the gun. the gun situation in america, to many people, seems increasingly ridiculous, where a young, deranged man could very easily access an ar-15 assault weapon and take a magazine with 100 bullets and commit mass murder. the last four shootings in america have involved that specific weapon. and have led to complete carnage. it's that that people want to remove. it's not regular guns, handguns, or pistols. what is your answer for that. >> first of all, guns are prohibited in the airplane. they're also prohibited in the school. what we've got to make sure is somebody who violates the law, that children are still protected. that's why we have federal air marshals on airplanes and that's why

. it was such a focus on women voters in the election. women voters who came out for barack obama talking about the needs of women, the perspective that women bring, and i think that raises the bar for him to show that he is going to put women in these top jobs. i think the white house has been taken aback by the response they've gotten. they feel like he has a pretty good record substantively, but the optics of these opening weeks have not been good for them on this issue. >> their own photo that they released, the white house photo. he was also asked by jackie about reports that he is too imsular and hasn't reached out. i topt play a little bit of that. >> most people who know me know i'm a pretty friendly guy. i like a good party. and, you know, the truth is that, you know, when i was in the senate, i had great relationships over there, and up until the point that i became president, this was not an accusation that you heard very frequently. >> chuck, let's talk about this because, i mean, you know the white house, this president, better than anyone. is this an unfair criticism that he is to
on a hollywood feel. the anticipation is growing over what michelle obama will wear. up next we'll talk to an author who has written a book about mrs. obama's unique style. >>> the first lady, michelle obama is known for many, many things, very calm demeanor, her dedication to health and fitness, her fantastic and enviable arpgs and her style. >> and as she celebrated her 49th birthday this past week, she was shorting a new hair style. it is all about the bangs. the nation simply abuzz after this photo was posted on twitter. she also turned some heads in a stylish tracy reece dress. at the democratic national convention, i don't know what that means, but i can't wait to find out. what will she wear on inauguration day. >> and tracy reece is just a very, very fabulous designer. we want to talk a little bit more about michelle obama's book, with kate betts, she is in new york. we're sorry you're missing out on the festivities here. usually i know we get a minute about what the first lady is going to wear on inauguration day. but this time around, no one knows, right? >> she keeps us waiti

. it's what president obama was talking about when he dedicated the king memorial in 2011. >> progress was hard. progress was purchased through enduring the smack of billy clubs and the blast of fire hoses. nearly 50 years after the march on washington, our work, dr. king's work is not yet complete. >> back in dr. king's day voter suppression was enforced by fire hoses and billy clubs. today it's more subtle. but just as dangerous. rnc chairman reince priebus is arguing to change the rules in their state for how they award in presidential elections. you should this kind of plan. might have won the white house last year, not barack obama. priebus says quote, it's something a lot of states have been consistently blue that are fully controlled red ought to be looking at. priebus supports this now
with some politics, i'm struck when you talk about republicans as they. i know you insist despite voting for president obama twice now that you're still a republican. but as i go through your record on some social issues and even foreign policy issues i challenge to you say on what basis are you still a republican? do you feel like this republican party has left you or have you left it? >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i'm still a republican. i'm a republican who grew up along with george bush xli. i grew up with ronald reagan, cap weinberger, frank carlucci that republican party, the problemen party of dick lugar and john tower. but in recent years, there's been a significant shift to the right and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country is changed. the country is changing demo graphically. if the republican party does not change along with that demographic, they are going to be in trouble.
party. he twice supported president obama and talks about a deep vein of tolerance within the party. >> general powell and i have been friends since he quit being a general. we don't see everything the same way. one thing plain, republicans in this election did poorerly among hispanics and poorly among african-americans. the good thing is with the right kind of policies and the right kind of effort we'll do that. remember george bush got 44% of the hispanic vote. >> you once said colon powell is on the main street of the policy. >> what do you think of his comments, particularly about intolerance? >> i think he is spot on and i see the republican party moving away from the olympia snowe's and people with great ideas. the rhetoric in this last campaign really turned off a lot of people, black, lateineo and gay. i saw newt gingrich talking about marriage equality and how the republican party will have to start embracing or be left behind. i think that is very, very true. i would love to see stop thinking how to win elections and how to address the issues of america. if we focus on sol

to a broader question under obama. we have come to talk about this stuff of 5 million green jobs and international treaties. it's hard to do any of that. so you're not going to produces 5 million green jobs, negotiating a global treaty is hard work and obama has been no better than george w. bush was. a lot of people have stopped talking about those issues have gotten involved in specific small things, like reversing their position on cracking, which used to be seen as a green energy and a lot of people are opposing. neil: maybe this is a healthy development for folks like you and people have come to realize that you have to have money to invest. >> we do. public investments are going on. they're going of the united states. >> but it's not coming out of thin air. >> okay, but it's not an investment. we are investing. $70 billion. >> not entirely, it is creating green energy jobs. >> do think you're getting as much bang for the buck trying to do so? >> well, yes, we are anticipated to see 4.4 million jobs. neil: but what about this year? i would check back. >> you know, if you loo
the airport and san jose. >> we are watching and washington. president obama is expected to talk more about controlling gun violence. >> it is a cold morning here in the bay area. >> as we take a look at the numbers currently it is in the upper 20's and 30's. we are below freezing in vallejo. fairfield is waking up to mid 30's. the temperatures are running very similar like yesterday. the wins are a factor in vallejo. it is a really cold morning of the wins are not around the bay area. the air is not mixing all around. the coldest temperatures are just hitting the ground. when we reached that afternoon it should be very pleasant. some spots will climb into the low 60's. as we look a head to the weekend it will be very pleasant periods the temperatures will be warm. >> we continue to monitor a hot spot around the bay area. here is a quick commute check. will start at the bay bridge where things are just are in to slow in the cash lanes. in the east bay there is slow traffic for interstate 580. the rest of the east bay freeways are doing very well. the south bay freeway through the north bay
. but we need a gang of 51. i've talked with president obama about this. he is extremely committed. i would like to see a number of other things. incidentally, senator durbin deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he has done with the dream act. he will be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" suggested yesterday that you present an obstacle to the passage of gun- control legislation. obviously, you do in a sense. but i am wondering if sort of standard -- the standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation. that is why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, will be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were talking about when they wrote the article, but i will strongly defend the press to write and print what they want, accurate or otherwise. but the fact is -- and i am not suggesting whether this was accurate or not -- but i will point out that i have a track record of getting legislation passed. some will say that nothi
work and obama has been no better than george w. bush was. a lot of people have stopped talking about those issues have gotten involved in specific small things, like reversing their position on cracking, which used to be seen as a green energy and a lot of people are opposing. neil: maybe this is a healthy development for folks like you and people have come to realize that you have to have money to invest. >> we do. public investments are going on. they're going of the united states. >> but it's not coming out of thin air. >> okay, but it's not an investment. we are investing. $70 billion. >> not entirely, it is creating green energy jobs. >> do think you're getting as much bang for the buck trying to do so? >> well, yes, we are anticipated to see 4.4 million jobs. neil: but what about this year? i would check back. >> you know, if you look at every sector -- neil: my argument is that we have not delivered on some of this. i just don't think certain things have panned out. >> it's about money and people don't see a return for their investment. they say, okay, you will will go along w
're moving off minoring in hip-hop and we'll talk economics here. president obama, maybe we'll talk hip-hop as well, in a final formal news conference before he takes the oath of office here in his second term spoke this morning, pushing for support on raising the debt ceiling. >> and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is running short. >> so the president says there will be no ransom, you heard him say no bargaining chip in this whole debt ceiling debate. the deadline to raise that ceiling is approaching quickly. some members in congress say they're willing to shut down the government to avoid raising that limit now. joining me now is ben stein. nice to have you
of the performers and we were talking about beyonce earlier last week. major obama supporter. then we have kelly clarkson. she is a ron paul supporter. >> she is. when the president calls and says please come sing i think you definitely want to perform. you have james taylor and the kids concert, alisha keys, john legend, usher, smoky robinson, the cast of "glee." >> plans on the ground, talk about that. i remember four years ago you couldn't move. you had to get out of your bed at 3:00 a.m. to get down to the mall in time because even the subways were so full. what do they expect this time around? >> last time it was 1.8 million people. this time around they are expecting around 600,000 to 800,000 people. it will be smaller but no less grand. i think obviously d.c. is really preparing for all of those things and you have to prepare early. hopefully there won't be problems trying to get into the gates like there was last time for the swearing in ceremony and then we had the ticket master drama. >> the tickets are supposed to be free but now people are able to buy them as much as 2 grand on ebay
using emotion than he did talking about his actual plans themselves. an emotional president obama unveiled his plan in front of an audience that included parents of newtown victims. >> she dreamed of becoming a painter. chris, her father, gave me one of her paintings. and i hung it in my private study. and every time i look at that painting, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. for grace. >> the president outlined four major points. each one evoked memories of past mass shootings. >> we will make sure mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. >> reporter: this action makes it easier to share mental health records with authorities, a move that could have identified seung-hui cho as a threat before the virginia tech massacre. >> congress should restore a ban on military-style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. >> reporter: the previous ban expired in 2004. the gun used in newtown, connecticut is the kind that would be banned. he wants a limit on ammunition that could hav
. ahead, we'll talk about president obama's potential executive order on gun control. we're talking to connecticut senator chris murphy about what the president actually can do as well as vice president biden's expected recommendation. that's coming up in just a few moments. first, though, we want to get an update on some of the other stories that are making news. john berman has that in new york. good morning, john. >> good morning, soledad. the nation wooild flu outbreak, it's just about everywhere. in all but three states, in fact, those lucky states, california, hawaii, and mississippi. in new york city the big hassle involves trying to get vaccinated. there's a run on the vaccine at some pharmacies and urgent care centers since governor andrew cuomo declared a public health emergency. debate resumes today in the house of representatives over two bills that address sandy relief aid. despite opposition from house conservatives, the bills are expected to pass providing an additional $50 billion to the hard hit northeast. lawmakers in the affected areas including new jersey governo
obama promises that no one's talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, it matters that gun control activists may, in fact, be talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, whether they know it or not. so let's forgo the arbitrary, ambiguous, fearmongering terms and get real specific about what we actually mean by gun control. it may be politically effective to rail against rapid fire, high capacity, assault weapons. doesn't actually mean anything. so if we're serious, we should at least start by getting the terms right. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's all yours. >> just a quick question. how many rounds did jared loughner fire off before he was tackled? >> what's your point? >> how many rounds had he fired off? >> i'm not sure. i don't remember. >> 31. >> okay. >> he was actually tackled because he was reloading. >> we should be trying to stop crazy people and criminals, martin, from shooting one person, not ten-plus one person which all is accomplished when you ban high capacity magazines. that's all that's
relationship with jodie foster. all right. the president talking about the debt ceiling yesterday. >> obama: raising the debt ceiling does not authorize us to spend more. all it does is say that america will pay its bills, and we are not a dead beat nation. >> stephanie: there you go, and who joining us now, but the representative jan schakowsky from the great state of illinois. >> good morning, i understand you have been getting some calls from my friends in chicago. >> stephanie: yes. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i thought the president put it very well, that you just cannot say it enough. the debt ceiling has nothing to do with budget cuts or anything going forward, it is paying bills that we have already racked up. >> that's so important. it's like getting your credit bill and saying, you know i'm protesting, i'm not going to pay it, because there are consequences, including your own personal credit rating will go down, and you'll get calls from checktors, and it will be pretty bad for you, worse of course for the federal government, and as the president pointed out s
up what our first read has put out today, talking about president obama's announcement, saying bottom line, obama is going to go as big as he can go, realizing there's little political downside, at least in the short term. chris, your reaction to that? is there really no downside to going straight for this as strongly as he can, fresh out of the gate and off the heels of the gun task force of the vice president's suggestions? >> well, obviously it's going to depend on what the president proposes but i think you've seen from the polls and i think you've seen the reaction from the country that something needs to be done. this is not something that's going to be solved with one simple measure. i think the president and his team have decided that a more comprehensive, bold approach is the smart thing to do. part that's disappointing to me is in this entire debate that kind of erupted obviously after the newtown shootings, is you've not heard anything from the republicans in terms of what they would be willing to even consider. would they consider magazines, would they consider any type of
and senior political reporter for politico and michael smerconish, a radio talk show host. let me start with you. there is an article today that said why president obama's gun plan may be doomed and said there strong indications that comprehensive legislation won't even see a vote on the house flew. you heard me. wasn't to put him on the pot, but i watched like you since new town and people said things have changed. i have yet to see and maybe you know of a few republican who is said things have changed and maybe it is time to put a man on assault weapons or some of the language ta is different than what we are hearing accusing the president of tyranny a power grab and the other accusations. >> let's separate two things. first of all, if you watch that press conference, a good solid one third was a direct appeal to the american people. he repeated himself over and over again. you heard congressman larson on the talking points and common sense. this is only going to happen if the american people want it to happen. you are going to see i think the president is prepared to use capital on t
person to talk about this at least today was colin powell when he talked about the issue of race and gop and what he saw as some of the enflamed code words that gop folks had been using in talking about president obama that might land differently with african-americans than they do with the general public, so it is i think a question about framing, but i also think it's got to be about specificity. the gop, for instance, now talking about spending cuts. are they prepared to say the "m" word? are they prepared to talk about medicare and are they prepared to talk about social security? so in some ways they are dancing around and being vague about entitlement and spending cuts but have been really loathe to get down to specifics. >> nia, there you go. you had a name there, colin powell. maybe that's the person you'll add to the list. >> stay with us. don't go anyway, ari, nia and matt. still ahead, how will the united states react to vice president joe biden's gun safety recommendations that will be coming out we expect on tuesday. we'll pick it up there when we come back. the place for pol
the government to make sure that president obama understands we're serious. we're talking about whether or not to kick the can down the road. i think mood is that we have come to the end of the road. with that kind of talk from republicans, in the house, will anything get done? >> i think, listen, they have to come up with some kind of agreement. if they don't, in fact, her premonition will come true and parts of the government will shut down. listen. you have an echo of different republican leader that is are out there saying that the theory of a government shutdown would not be such a bad idea and setting this up, trying to desensitize what would otherwise be a pretty calamitous thing for the country and the economy. >> we heard the same thing about the fiscal cliff from progressives on this show saying let's go over the cliff, how bad could it be? >> absolutely. people on the left saying the same thing and what i think is going to happen here is going to come to a short-term agreement and they're going to wait for the president's budget which is due out i think the beginning of febru

committee. you're talking about the debt ceiling debate. wall street journal says that president obama has escalated the fight. let me show you a little of what he said. [video clip] >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners, food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear materials would not get their paychecks, investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is a safe bet. markets could go haywire. interest rates would spike for anyone who borrows money. every homeowner with a mortgage, every student with a college loan, every small business owner who wants to grow. host: your reaction? guest: first, thanks for having me on the show, greta. i have owned the business over 20 years as an entrepreneur, have been looking at budgets for over 30 years. even now, as a businessman who has had a season of public- service, i have 150 employees in virginia. so this i
is shucking and jiving. that's a racial era slave term. >> powell is most likely talking about former alaska governor sarah palin who blasted president obama for his handling of the benghazi consulate attack on facebook writing in part, "why the lies? why the cover up? why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador? on the anniversary of the worst terror attacks on american soil. we deserve answers to this. president obama's shuck and jive shtick with these benghazi lies must end." joining me now cnn contributor and senior writer for, gra l.z. granderson. and will cain. palin defended the remarks saying there was nothing racist about them. was there? >> i'm going to go with no, carol. you know this is always my favorite segment. why are republicans racist? are you racist? tell me again what is not racist about conservatism? it's always the burden of proof to prove you're not a racist, which is a near impossible thing to do. i understand you're not asking me about my personal views. you're asking about a party. i don't know, whatever that is, tens of millions of p
with the headline saying that he could slow down obama's efforts on gun control. have the two of you talked about any sort of compromise legislation? guest: we've had some good conversations in terms of the leadup to this new congress. he called to congratulate me, and he and i have had some discussions about different things that we might work together on, but we have not specifically spoken about gun issues. host: immigration reform? guest: we have not talked about immigration reform in the broader sense and my predecessor, lamar smith, had extensive discussions with regard to the legislation that the house passed at the end of the last congress in december to address a program that i've been trying to eliminate for many years called the visa lottery or visa diversity program. 55,000 green cards given away not based on family reunification or job skills that are needed in the united states but based on pure luck. that was then tied to a program to encourage people who attend u.s. universities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics backgrounds to stay in the u.s., use those skills
an amount of uncertainty, if you will. just today president obama was talking about what could happen if congress doesn't agree to let the government essentially pay its bills. let's listen. >> america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. if congressional republicans refused to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. >> so the truth is the president and the congress actually have to agree on all of this to end up getting a deal. but the question for you, suze, is what are americans supposed to do during a time of uncertainty? for example, if you're thinking about making a big purchase, should you do it now or wait till the president and the congress figures it out? >> the time has come, in my opinion that americans realize that their future cannot be in the hands of politicians. that their financial future has to be held tightly right within their own grips. and if they don't have the money to buy something outright, if they have to put it on a credit
talk to a larger question. nia is completely right. the obama people have continued polling, polling, polling, polling. and they feel like they have the public on their side. and their choice of words. for instance, yesterday the president talked about education. education polls really well among women. so they know what they're doing when they play the outside game. >> well said. thank you so much. nia-malika henderson, welcome back to haub. glenn thrush. beginning to sound like a pack of moon shiners. remember them, chasing the revenuers out of town? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. i paint people from my life mostly. my ex-girlfriend... 7th grade math teacher. who is this? that's pete. my...

talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other things and we'll work on it. one of your fellow graduates of georgetown, senator durbin, deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he's done in the dream act. he'll be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" had a piece yesterday suggesting that you represented perhaps an obstacle to the passage of gun control legislation. i'm wondering -- obviously you do in a sense. but i'm wondering if sort of standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation and that's why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, is going to be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were writing about when i read the article, but i will strongly defend the press right to print anything they want, accurate or otherwise, but the fact is -- i'm not suggesting whether this was accurate or not
as this time whether he should criticize or concern the road is going on with obama, criticizing, talk to the supreme court what congress said. that same situation. >> why is that? why is that iraq i think in part actually this just that to close. it has come up wraparound the actual polarization. i think the one thing we can take away from this whole situation is that bullies when. as much as we believe. nothing more. basically he can call people up and humiliate them and bash them, and it does manage you intimidate governments and leaders radical institutions. i think that is a problem. we all feel what could happen. of the -- of 81 should have called what happened a coup. it was, but the fact that no one raised the question of what this meant for their respective the letter. it is not the spirit of the constitution. it was very sad. worse, and this is a government that is very good. always staying a few -- shades of gray, and not the novel, but consistently named supreme court justices violating procedures, and consistently now -- if it comes to an election let me venture a guess, t
not apply to me. ahhhh! >> stephanie: he's talking about the obama administration using executive order to bypass congress so they can't get gun control measures done. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over. that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican president but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we'll fight tooth and nail and i promise you there will be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the constitution. >> know what i mean, wink, wink, nudge, nudge dog whistle. here lassie. >> apparently -- >> stephanie: yes. does he not -- the white house knows which stuff is obviously that you can do by executive order and which stuff you can't. they keep putting this information out there. none of the stuff we're talking about has to do with taking your stupid guns. it has to do with, you know, gathering information and that kind of stuff. okay. what are you doing? what are you doing over there? let's go to my ron

. and this is something that president obama really seems to want to usher? >> the catalyst of the conversation, though, seems to be based on what we witness as a country in newtown. play your michael bloomberg was on our air earlier and talking about the fact that we can use that as an example. we have a bigger problem in this country. gentlemen, take a listen. >> as horrific as sandy hook has been and all of the other seechliseechl i seemingly episodes of mass violence, we experience that carnage or worse every single day across our country because every day of the year an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here's another way to think about what that means. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. and unless we take action, during those four years some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. >> mayor michael bloomberg speaking from baltimore, maryland, along with governor martin o'malley there as they introduce the summit on reducing gun violence in america. when we think about the numbers in just that small frame of reference that mayor bl
